Stuff: grasping for Air



I wonder if I'm too old for these kinds of milestones...

Here I am, at forty two, a recent grad in Graphic Design, living in the San Francisco Bay Area, and even with a decent salary anywhere else in my country not even making ends meet with the day wage.

But when you live in one of the worst housing markets in an area that wants little to do with you if you aren't working the next latest tech thing, and you've pretty much reached the end of your rope, you have to take drastic measures because your hopes and dreams... your very sense of dignity and self worth... demand it of you.

So today I decided to push back, if just a little. Today I said to myself; "no more saying 'one of these days'." Without so much more than a glance I put a plan into motion. No, I have no idea what I'm doing.

But then, after forty two years, why start now?
